MODSIM – Unified Modeling and Simulation
MODSIM unifies modeling and simulation on a common data model within a single user experience on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
July 24, 2023
MODSIM is more than simulation-driven design. MODSIM enables simulation to drive the entire product development process from beginning to end, from requirements to architecture, from validation to certification, and from product development to program management, including design exploration, processes, automation, change management and collaboration.
The continuous pursuit of cleaner cars and much shorter development timescales demands a much closer integration between CAD and CAE and a greater confidence in the CAE predictions. At Jaguar Land Rover, we have invested heavily in the deployment of 3DEXPERIENCE as the backbone for engineering as we believe that this platform will give us the close integration and confidence in simulation that we need.
MODSIM Questions Answered
We’ve put together some commonly asked questions to give you more information about MODSIM.
- MODSIM is a resulting value in using unified modeling (CAD) and simulation (CAE) tools and technology in the context of an innovation platform supported by automation, design space exploration, and knowledge capture.
- MODSIM allows customers to cut design time from months to weeks and weeks to days as attested by customers themselves.
Engineers have used Modeling and Simulation for years. Why are we discussing it now more than ever?
Yes, engineers have used Modeling and Simulation tools for many years. But the tools were siloed with their own required knowledge and organizational teams. MODSIM is more than just bringing the tools together. MODSIM is about the value of truly left-shifing simulation into the design and even concept design stages allowing design exploration, knowledge capture, and acceleration of sustainable design with improved quality
What is the main advantage of using MODSIM?
The connection between Modeling (CAD) and Simulation is intimate and immediate. Simulation best-practices and processes developed by expert analysts can be published and re-used with the context of design. MODSIM fosters creativity and design exploration through its fast and efficient simulation model updates following a CAD revision.
